Can we Abbreviate Allah and His Messenger's Blessings?

March 31, 2022 | Quick Benefit

In the Name of Allah,

Praise be to Allah,

As Muslims we are obligated to send blessings upon the Prophet (salallahu alayhi wa salam) and Allah (subhana wa ta'ala). However though, people will sometimes abbreviate these blessings when they are mentioned. and I will admit, I used to be one of these people, until I learned not to do this on Abu Khadeejah's website. Abbreviating the blessings of Allah and His Messenger is not allowed.

From the Sunnah of the Prophet (salallahu alayhi wa salam) is that if someone invokes his blessings, Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) will write his blessings upon him tenfold due to it:

"Whoever invokes blessings upon me once, Allah will send blessings upon him tenfold due to it." (1)

This means that the believing Muslim must write the blessings in full (subhanahu wa ta'ala (for mentioning Allah) ), (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam (for mentioning the Prophet of Allah) ).

May Allah bless you, and shukran.
